, of being a terror attack. large explosions. a big bomb in oslo, and then a guy who steals is police uniform or creates one and then goes to the camp, and he also had mom-making materials or a bomb on the island. you begin to say this is an awful big sort of incident to have just one person. so for a lot of reasons i think people assume, based on recent history over the last ten years, of an international terrorism conspiracy. we're now hearing maybe not. this may be a right wing extremist. somebody from their midst. >> fran, this reminds me of the oklahoma city bombing. when that happened it was also so big the initial idea was this had to be a group of some sort, and i guess it was. there were two people involved. it was not a massive group nor a big effort. >> that's right. i think one, you will find this will be hard to do alone. the times square bomber, it's hard to have one guy to get the materials and put it together correctly and detonate it. it's reasonable to suspect he had some amount of help. and we are hearing from media sources the individual in custody may have been a farmer.
feeling. >> i can't wait to see you in new york. start that race together and give you a big hug at the finish line. >> sounds good. can't wait to see you. >> if you want to follow along with me or any members of the six-pack, logon to cnn.com/sanjay. thanks for being with us this morning. time now to get you back into the cnn newsroom for a check of our big stories. >>> this from the cnn center in atlanta, georgia, this is your saturday morning, k a.m. eastern time and i'm t.j. holmes. two developing stories. first the president summoning congressional leaders back to the white house for a saturday morning conference. this comes the day after the house speaker, john boehner walked out on debt talks. the president calling them right back. >>> also the developing story out of norway where at least 91 people have been killed in two separate attacks in norway. police there say these two attacks are, in fact, linked. still a developing story. we'll have the very latest for you live in just a moment. we need to begin in washington, d.c. with that looming deadline on the nation's debt.
was always striving for a big deal. from the speaker's perspective, the white house at the last minute from their view moved the goal posts. they -- what it sounds like, not only comes to some agreement on a framework, but they were talking real details on some of these proposals, having to do with cuts and spending cuts and medicare and enconstitutitlemen all that. after this agreement that they have come to -- it had reached, they say the white house moved the goal posts. and in their view, speaker bane her to step back, take stock of the situation and really look at the calendar very seriously. as he said had, to do something because the white house's vision was not in line with that of congress. and that's why speaker boehner has now made this very aggressive move saying he's now just working with congress on this. >> jessica, we're running very tight on time tonight. i want to get through a lot fast. is there a sense when you look at the numbers that both sides talk about, even if you take their conflicting versions of what happened, i had the sense they were both talking about really
to engage in serious negotiations. >> so, now what is the big question? speaker boehner will rebut the president just about 14 minutes from now. we'll take you there live. in his letter to his colleagues, he said his preference now is to work on a plan in the congress. but the president expects the house and the senate leaders of both parties at the white house saturday morning. is this just theater before a deal or a recipe for gridlock and maybe an economy shattering government default? chief white house correspondent jessi jessica yellin, and kate bolduan, and gloria borger here, jess, the speaker doesn't want to negotiate anymore, and this is not a president known for his anger or his temper, but he seemed pretty piqued. >> reporter: this was the president hitting by far his most frustrated, fed-up note during the debt negotiations by far, john. we heard him say that the republicans just don't know how to say yes. that he offered the most generous package he could. in short he said that he offered them a deal that democrats just didn't like. he was basically saying he was enrag
&p said they need to do to keep the credit rating at triple-a. >> how big of a concern is that? even with the plans the credit rating might still be downgraded? >> it's a very big risk, anderson. there's two different events here and it's hard to keep them separated from each other. the first is getting the debt sealing lifted. that's the critical negotiation under way now. even if we get it lifted, eric's right. standard & poor's is saying even if you get it lifted it's how much you're willing to cut the deficits that they will really judge the triple-a rating of the united states on and if it's something less than $3 to $4 trillion in real cuts they're going to lower the credit rating of the united states for the first time in our history. we've had it since 1917 we've been triple-a. there's a growing sense at top levels here in washington that the chances of a credit rating downgrade is becoming more than just a possibility but moving towards a probability. >> april, for those who haven't been following this as closely as everybody in washington and a lot of other folks have been
.m. this meeting last night came after word of a potential deal and a pretty big deal after word of a potential deal really stole the headlines yesterday afternoon and overnight. this would be, as i said, a pretty big deal. $3 trillion in deficit savings over ten years. and we only have a rough sketch of it. what is interesting, don, as you said, the white house is shooting this down. they say there is no deal. we heard jay carney shoot this down yesterday. the speaker's office is saying there is no deal but we have from congressional sources who are speaking on anonymity there is a framework. at 10:00 a.m. we will detail what the sources are telling us is in this potential agreement. >> only 10 1/2 days. thank you very much. we will be coming back to you throughout the day. >>> among an already crowded field of gop presidential candidates, a new cnn/orc poll suggests that texas governor rick perry may want to throw his hat into the ring too. mr. paul steinhauser joins us live from washington. >> rick perry is thinking about jumping into the white house and could do it. stay tuned on that. the
, again, big difficulties with the sydney s&p 200 by more than 1%. let's move over to europe. we're a touch into the hour on the trading day. a decent run-up on some of these markets in the course of last week, off by -- well, actually only a fraction of a percent now. it has been more than that, half a percent for the cac. in the united states markets clearly opened -- will be opening in less than five hours' time and we're looking to a lower start as well. off by 1%. certainly a little pessimism. maybe some optimism mixed in. we will, as hillary clinton says, see a deal in the course of day or the next day or two. >> yeah, it will be interesting to see how the european markets pan out as well and how it affects the u.s. futures. you know, this talk of possible default is actually sending some investors to safe havens like gold for example. hitting a record high of $1,617.30, now it's $1,617.30. the oil price pulling back just a tad over the back of what's going to happen to the u.s. economy and demand for crude. charles. >> hmm. now, if hillary clinton is right and a deal is ju
of some instruments that could -- showing, you know, trouble in the lending market. >> the big question is, will washington let that happen, and right now that answer is not any clearer than it was yesterday morning. we begin with breaking news, though. this titanic struggle that's continued to go on right now to end the debt crisis before next tuesday's deadline. here's a live look at the capitol where overnight, infighting among republicans forced house speaker john boehner to yank his debt bill. they thought there was going to be a vote last night. there is hope he will try to pass it again today. in four hours the speaker will again sit down with fellow republicans and again try to entice just a handful of hardline conservatives to fall in line. >> the bill's not perfect. i never said it was perfect. nobody in my caucus believes it's perfect. but what this bill reflects is a sincere, honest effort to end this crisis in a bipartisan way to send it to the senate where it can receive action. >> now the speaker's bill would cut $900 billion from the budget over ten years in exchange for a
currency including the euro, jach knees yen as well as the british euro. the big news out of australia today, well, basically the aussie dollar is near a 30-year high. since last year alone the aussie dlar has risen this much, 18.6% against the u.s. dollar. tony morris told cnn there will be winners and losers because of this. >> certainly going to make it more difficult for exports overseas, particularly manufacturing. will make it much harder for the retail sec tor to compete with cheaper goods from overseas. another direct impact, it makes it much more expensive for tourists to visit. those parts of our economy for the tourist sector, we're not going to benefit so greatly from that. the wig guest winners for this are the consumers. find it far cheaper to buy hopefully things on the shelves, for example. >> so the aussie dollar's record strength comes partly thanks to the debt ceiling deadlock in the u.s., but also linked with higher-than-expected inflation down under. australia's latest cpi reading came out today at .9%. many analysts were expecting .7%. because of this higher figur
, indeed. they raised the stakes earlier on, making a big deal saying he no longer wanted to work with the white house, and yet we're hearing he's going to be at the white house tomorrow morning for more meatings. how is the white house iraqing to this? >> there's a lot of talk about the fact the president has put in repeated calls to speak eer boehner as the president tells it, in order to get a response. the white house made an outreach, an overture of the outline, and the president called speaker boehner's office first, and was told that speaker boehner wasn't available to talk to the president. this is not your stand protocol in president. you make yourself available to talk to the president or shortly thereafter. there is frustration about that expressed here, but there is still an openness and a willi willingness on both sides to negotiate because everybody wants to get the debt ceiling raised, and here, also, they say maybe this obama/boehner framework could be the deal in the end, so it's still not off the table from this perspective. >> you say there's a willingness on bo
out of room to cut. you will remember the big spending bill earlier this year cut tens of billions of dollars. so if you take a step back and you look at the entire forest there's a lot of spending cuts going on. lot of real spending cuts democrats are arguing that they are going to hurt a lot of people. so those certainly are accounting tricks. in terms of that last little margin to get to the point where they are cutting more than they are raising the debt ceiling which is what republican leaders wanted to do, they needed to rely on some creative use of cbo accounting methods. >> right. this is also interesting, though. even if he does get john boehner, that is, the house, even if he does get the conservatives to fall in lynn and go ahead and vote for this, there seems to be question about whether it will get out of the senate. have you 53 senators, two independents, included who said they are not going to support boehner's proposal. now we are looking at another proposal perhaps harry reid's proposal which the cbo also downgraded. let's take a look at the numbers. instead of $2.
source that this meeting was called over a big impasse between these congressional leaders on these now fresh negotiations between them, don. the impasse is over a part this proposal that we've now learned that house speaker john boehner is pushing, and it has proposed to some members on a conference call earlier today. this proposal would raise the debt ceiling but would also come with $3 trillion to $4 trillion in cuts but would require a two-step process. and that's where the big impasse is according to democratic sources over this two-step process. one source putting it to me pretty clearly, it was rejected in the meeting. this person said neither reed nor pelosi nor the president will agree to any deal that does not increase the debt ceiling, the debt limit through 2012. that seems to be the impasse where they are now. i will tell you one point this a source says that was agreed on in the room is that they want to reach some agreement before asian markets open tomorrow. so they are actively working. if we take anything away from this afternoon, maybe one part of a proposal might be
reporter dovetails neatly with our big question tonight. keeping them honest, if a strong majority of americans is telling washington they want a deal on the debt crisis, they want these guys to compromise with the other side, they want a mix of spending cuts and tax increases. then why isn't washington getting the mage? we've got new polling that says all of that. and this is important. recent polling may also explain why we haven't got an deal yet. we'll tell you what we're talking about. in any case, americans are speaking out today. >> good morning, speaker boehner's office. how may i help you? >> a summer avalanche of phone calls hitting the capitol. president obama asked for it in his address to the nation last night. here it is. house switchboard today getting nearly double the volume of normal phone calls, house speaker baine er's office reporting as many as 300 people on hold for as long as an hour. online the same story. site unavailable. server busy. we found better than one in three congressional web sites either slow or down entirely from all the volume. also multiple

states and these other 18 countries have aaa ratings. the u.s. is the big safe haven in the world. so why do these credit agencies matter? who listens to them? investors around the world listen to them. they look at the credit rating agencies and the credit rating of companies and countries to decide where they'll invest the money. for governments, they have a lot of power over the interest rates on the bonds that they can sell to investors. the safest bets pay the lowest interest. that and 's what you want if yoa government trying to raise money. agencies are either paid by the borrower or from subscribers who need the information. standard & poor's tells cnn money that the sovereign u.s. rating is unsolicited, that the u.s. government doesn't pay anything for that rating. and that it is an unbiased ass isment of what's p happhappenin the u.s. >>> here's a rundown some of the stories we're covering. wall street employees are canceling vacations with the debt ceiling deadline just six days away. is that a bad omen for your 401(k)? and i talked to a man who developed a rare tumor after wor
questions. on the one hand, he loses a day and there are only six days to go. so that is a big deal. the other thing is that what is more important is the loss perhaps in credibility. the speaker said his plan was going to, you know, save something like over a trillion dollars. but it only saves about $850 billion. so that's a bill difference, too. a question of credibility. on the other hand, he buys some time, because there are a number of people in the house of representatives, some of whom who actually spoke out last night and said this thing is not going to pass. i'm not going to vote for it. he gets a little bit more time to try to drum up the support he needs, because once he puts something on the floor, he has got to get a yea vote. >> all right. dan, you know, there is some talk of a band-aid slash patch approach. what would that do? >> reporter: well, look. a message you've heard from the white house last week or so, that the president does not embrace a short-term deal, but if, in fact, it does appear that there is some compromise happening, that both sides have agreed to
